    Amazing!

    We had a such wonderful experience at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens! We were planning our wedding from Philadelphia, and couldn't ask for more a helpful team to work with throughout the planning process. From our initial tour of the entire plantation and venue space, we had a great experience on site and with the staff. The Magnolia team provided us with an amazing list of vendors who were familiar with the venue, and were there to provide more recommendations along the way. When we decided to book the Carriage House for our wedding, we were happy to find out that an outdoor ceremony site was also included, as well as use of the entire plantation for photos, and a bridal suite. We got married on the grounds of the Carriage House this past October and couldn't have asked for a more picture perfect day. The grounds provide such an AMAZING backdrop for photographs and a wedding ceremony! We are so overwhelmed thinking back to how beautiful our wedding was.

    We eloped with just us and our two girls but the plantation staff still pulled out all the stops! Each spot is more beautiful than the next on the plantation so you can’t go wrong with location or pictures. Beautiful bridal suit also made getting ready convenient and fun!
